Shipping News Feature

UK – WORLDWIDE – Members of the Freight Network Corporation (FNC Group) and others intending to visit the International Freight Forwarders and Logistic Conference in London during November are reminded they have just two days left to save themselves $100 on the price of a ticket to the event. FNC was established in 2004 and has grown to include over 170 international members, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, many of whom will be represented at the forthcoming event.

The European Conference is the second significant event of the year for the group following a successful meeting in March in Kuala Lumpur. The London event is to be held between the 21st and 23rd November 2013 at the Tara Copthorne Hotel, Kensington and to qualify for the ‘Early Bird’ discount both members and non-members need to apply by the 15th September. Over one hundred companies have already signalled their presence at the event and applicants can register HERE.

The FNC Group has blocked rooms at the Hotel and a discount rate is applicable to those attendees who apply before the pre-booked rooms are all taken. The FNC group has traditionally attracted members from Asia, and conferences have been conducted at venues such as Singapore, Mumbai, Bangkok, Shanghai, Hong Kong as well as Kuala Lumpur. The group now intends to try and attract more European based forwarders to increase the globalisation of its membership.
